I got tired of practicing my Space Marines (though I'm far from done with Warhammer stuff just yet) so I decided to revisit an older Exalted sketch: [link]
I've been a little burnt out on Exalted lately, mainly due to a moment where I sat down and reviewed the sheer BULK of errata that manifests itself in the game. As an engineer I understand the need to refine a system, but quite frankly it's a bit daunting. That being said, I still think that Creation is one of the most interesting places for stories, so I doubt that there will be anything permanent in my downtime.
Design-wise, I'm just doing what I often do - cutting down on details until I find the happy place I'm looking for. I liked the original Azure Crane drawing quite a bit at the time (since it mixed L5R and Exalted a bit), and it was a good choice to go back and give her another attempt. I'm not sure where exactly the pose came from, but I like it - it's different than my usual stuff, which is a good thing (I think).
